Hi.
The reason of of start in safe mode is to give you the opportunity to fix something wrong in your system.
Posible causes :
- You are not shuting the system down Properly.

If you have a power supply that needs to be turned off manually make sure you turn it off only when the system tells you it is save to do it.( after clicking in shutdown in start menu).

- There are incompatibilities in your system.
Make sure all the devices are properly installed ( hardware and software) and and there is no conflict between them.( you can read about this in windows help( look in start menu or in the toolbar of any window for the button HELP).

Some times it is a simple driver you need to install or reinstall.

- A system file is corrupted ( most the time you will have to reinstall Windows) if that is the case, there are other ways to fix it but are a little more complex.

- Problems in the Registry( only people familliar with that can fix it) or can be solved by reinstalling Windows.

-Make sure the CMOS is saving your Config in the setup.
may be the battery needs to be replaced( you will have to configure Setup again after replacing it.

In any case i advice you to get help from somebody familiar with PCs, before you try anything that can result in damage for your PC.
If you want to do it yourself, get some tutorials about PCs.

Hope this help.
Regards

How do you put windows into safe mode?


Power on or Restart your computer, keep tapping F8 on the keyboard while it boots up. After few seconds, you'll be taken to the "Advanced Boot Options" with "Safe Mode" in the lists. Use the Up-Down arrow keys to highlight the "Safe Mode" and press enter on the keyboard to confirm the selected boot options. Black Screen with white texts will be displayed on the display, wait for few seconds until you see the windows logon Screen. You'll also see a confirmation message box asking you to confirm to boot into Safe Mode, click "yes" or "Ok" and proceed forward. There now you are in the Safe Mode.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a problem to install window 98 .


Another solution is to download and install Microsoft Virtual PC in XP, create a Virtual PC drive, and install Windows 98 onto the Virtual PC drive. This works fine if you want to run Win 9X programs which don't require access to USB ports on your computer. If you need Windows 98 to have full access to all of the computer hardware, then use palaboy's solution.

I am using windows 98 .when ever i start my computers it is showing error A FATAL EXCEPTION 0E HAS OCCURED AT 016F:BFF8D18A AND COMPUTER REBOOT AGAIN PLEASE GIVE ME SOME SOLUTION.


Hello,

Sounds to me that a program installed isn't playing nice with Windows 98. I would go into safe mode and remove what ever software was recently installed or do as the link says and remove Antivirus program. If you can't get into safe mode I would have to tell you to reinstall Windows 98.

Have a good day,

My pc starting problem


You can try starting win98 in safe mode, keep shift key pressed on startup to force safe mode. Then, If you can start in safe mode you may try to troubleshoot the problem uninstalling software recently installed, looking for devices that are not working properly in device menager, and eventually performing a virus scan and a system check using Norton utilities or a similar program. If the PC doesnt even start in safe mode I suggest re-installing the system from Win98 CD.

Hope this may help
